June 2018 - Editorial

Dear PowerPlant Chemistry readers:

Midsummer (the longest day of the year) is already over and the first half of the year is history – it's time to take at least a few days off work to spend time with your family and friends. Our editorial team will do the same – getting our heads free of work and reloading our batteries, to be ready for the second half of the year.

But before leaving for the summer holidays, it's also time to look back on the first half of the year 2018. We have faced problems this year publishing the first three issues on schedule with our editorial calendar. This issue again has been quite a challenge and we have had to postpone our publishing date several times – please accept our sincere apologies for the delay and any inconvenience it may have caused.

Looking to the future I would like to remind you about a few upcoming events in which our journal is involved with the organization.

The most important event is the PowerPlant Chemistry Forum in Delhi, India, on November 22 and 23, 2018. The Forum will provide excellent insights into the latest developments in cycle chemistry, and numerous examples from fossil, combined cycle, and nuclear plants from around the world will be shared. The conference will consist of both invited and contributed technical papers – please find more information in the call for papers here. The Forum will be of major interest to operational personnel, technical managers, plant engineers, boiler operators, cycle and plant chemists, corrosion scientists, and service providers, as well as manufacturers of components and chemicals. We are looking forward to receiving many interesting submissions and suggestions for making this forum a valuable and excellent event.

And here is an update on the next international conference on film forming substances (FFS): The Third International Conference on Film Forming Substances (FFS 2019) will be held in Heidelberg, Germany, on March 20 to 22, 2019; please find the first announcement and call for papers here.

I would like to remind you that only by continuing exchange with colleagues and experts in the field is it possible to keep up-to-date with the ongoing developments in power plant chemistry. If you haven't participated in these events in the past, I greatly encourage you to do so in the future. The most important events are listed in our events calendar; for many of the events you can find more detailed information in this issue. As we can't have our eyes and ears everywhere, it is possible that we might overlook one event or another; if you think that there is an important event missing from our events calendar, please let us know!

Finally, I would like to encourage you to supply a contribution to our journal. Share your experience with your colleagues in power plants all over the world – there's no better way than through our journal.

I'm looking forward to your letters and e-mails!
